John Bower "Bouse" Hutton (October 24, 1877 – October 27, 1962) was a Canadian ice hockey goaltender who played for the Ottawa Hockey Club. Hutton also played lacrosse as a goaltender for the Ottawa Capitals, and Canadian football as a fullback for the Ottawa Rough Riders. Playing at the highest level of competition in each sport, Hutton won championships with all three teams.[1]

After his career as a player, Hutton was an ice hockey coach in Ottawa for several years.[2] He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1963.[3]

Career[edit]

Hutton began his ice hockey career with the Ottawa Hockey Club of the Canadian Amateur Hockey League (CAHL) in the 1899 season with two appearances.[4] The 1900 season was Hutton's first full season with Ottawa. Hutton finished the season with a 2.70 goals-against average,[4] in a time when double-digit scores were very common.[1] In the 1901 season, Hutton played all eight games, and continued to have a low goals-against average, of 2.50.[5] In the 1902 season, Hutton recorded two shutouts, and finished with a 1.70 goals-against average.[4]

In the 1903 season, his average increased to 3.80; however, in the CAHL playoffs, Hutton posted a 1–0–1 record, with one shutout and a 0.50 goals-average, while in the Stanley Cup finals, Hutton posted a 2–0 record, with a 2.00 goals-against average as Ottawa won the Stanley Cup. After the Stanley Cup win, the Ottawa Hockey Club was renamed the Silver Seven, after the silver coins given to the players after their Stanley Cup victory.[6] In the 1904 season, Hutton won all of Ottawa's four games, but the team withdrew from the CAHL mid-season before completing its eight-game schedule. Hutton appeared in Stanley Cup challenges only, posting a 6–1–1 record, with one shutout and a 2.90 goals-against average. At the end of the CAHL season, the Stanley Cup trustees ruled that Ottawa would retain the Cup. After the conclusion of the 1904 season, Hutton temporarily retired from ice hockey. His replacement in the Silver Seven's nets was Dave Finnie. Hutton returned for one more season with Ottawa Senators of the Federal Amateur Hockey League (FAHL) in 1909; he appeared in five games.[4]

During his ice hockey career, Hutton won the first Minto Cup, then awarded to Canada's top senior men's lacrosse team, in 1901 with the Ottawa Capitals. In the fall of 1902, Hutton won the Canadian football championship with Ottawa Rough Riders. After his retirement from ice hockey, Hutton won another Minto Cup with the Capitals in 1904. The team toured England after the win, and 23 out of 24 games.[2][6]
